Bjorn 3D have recently reviewed the ASUS P8Z77 WS Motherboard which, in their words, "looks to be an utterly amazing and very capable offering":

"ASUS makes it their business to ensure they cover every possible niche or user group type. This is evidenced by the sheer number of boards available. Many of them are only different by one minor feature, but that difference is legitimate to many users; for example, not every user will want Wi-Fi, so some models have Wi-Fi bundled while some do not. This wide range of products is actually a good thing, as it allows users to buy what they want without paying for a bunch of features they donít need. However ASUS also has specific segment level boards which are really focused in on a specific user group, such as the ROG series, which covers the extreme enthusiasts and gamers very well.

Another big market segment is the workstation niche, which requires a board with optimum capability, but also stability. These products are meant for use in servers and graphics rendering stations. They need to be very functional, and must be able to withstand the kinds of constant loads the workstation crowd generates. This is exactly what ASUS delivers with a board that not only passes standard desktop class testing but then moves on to server-class testing which puts it through some of the most extreme environments you can imagine for a PC component. With the WS series of boards, youíre not just getting a solidly built board, but you are getting stability along with many features designed around productivity and efficiency."

From reading the above, if I was a fickle fellow, I'd assume that stability is NOT a requirement in boards aimed at gamers.
